Welcome to TAC.

You need 10 posts before you can see the classified, but location and more specific list would help.

Summit racing or rock auto are my go to places. You should be even more set as you don't have to pay as much for shipping and exchange rate.

X2 for Summit & Rock Auto.  I have to really watch what I buy on Craigslist though.  Lot of junk - "it worked just fine last time we ran it"  Don't get me wrong... lots of deals, but you have to know what you're looking at.

There used to be a Camaro-and-Firebird-only junkyard in Columbia.  I know these cars are getting old, but there are a lot of junk cars in South Carolina.  They don't salt the roads much.  Lots of good metal at least.

Don’t know if you’re looking for but I have a complete front rolling chassis and rear end. I also have a tub that I plan on separating to sell off the good pieces. Shipping from WI would be a killer though. I made a road trip through South Dakota and Iowa for parts. Ended up buying a lot more than I went for, had a blast.

Don't know how your parts search is going, but I bought a 1980 T/A for the engine (had a 1970 400 in it that needed rebuilding).  I basically don't want much else from it.  The floor pans have a few poor-boy patches in it, both door panels and carpet were missing... and now the engine :)

Overall it's straight, but in rough shape.  I can take a good look at the rear quarter(s) tomorrow if you're still interested.

I also have a running 79 403 Olds (that came out of my 81) and an automatic tranny available for purchase.

Just FYI.  If there's anything else parts wise you're looking for, ask & I'll see if it/I has/have it.
